Postdoctoral researcher


I am an environmental ecologist interested in plant/insect models and their interactions with changing environments. I investigate and develop ecological indicators of climate change and environmental pollution, considering the great potential of an organism's coloration. I have been working with social insects such as ants, wasps, and wild bees, which supply us with numerous essential ecosystem services such as plant pollination, crop protection, seed-dispersing, ecosystem engineering, and others. My current research focus is dedicated to the restoration ecology of urban ecosystems and developing new approaches to safeguard pollinator biodiversity in traffic-polluted environments. My goal as a scientist is to find new solutions for sustainable environmental management and biodiversity protection in cities.
